Not just that he even opted out for the Bharat Biotech's covaxin that led to a barrage of criticism from the opposition for the trials for the vaccine still had not been completed.

Ever since the vaccination drive began in the couuntry, the Vaccine politics has been raging in the country.

A lot of questions have been raised by the opposition leaders.

Even today after PM Modi took the vaccine, he encouraged everyone who is eligible to come forward and take the jab.

But the opposition has not spared him.

Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury drew a link to the Assam, Kerala and Puducherry elections to the PM’s gesture.

Chowdhury said that had PM Modi carried Rishi Aurobindo’s photo and Geetanjali with him, all five poll-bound states would have been covered.

Well after he Prime Minister wore a gamosa from Assam, while nurses from Kerala and Puducherry administered the Covaxin shot, many couldn't overlook the connection to the elections.

Mehbooba Mufti urges JandK youth to leave guns and start dialogue

Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party (JKPDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti on April12 appealed to the youth of Union Territory to leave weapons and start advocating for the welfare of JandK. Underlining the Bodo peace talks in Assam, she also questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not initiating similar peace deals in Kashmir. "We ask our nation to give us back what was snatched away from us. If you want people of Jammu and Kashmir, you'll have to reinstate our honour. There's no other way. I say this to my country. Why does BJP get angry when I say it? Will I ask from Pakistan? If PM Narendra Modi appeals to militants of Assam to join the mainstream and leave their weapons, if talks are held with Boro (Bodo), then what is the difficulty in doing the same in Jammu and Kashmir? Why is there no option besides jail? How long will this injustice continue?," said PDP chief. She further said, "Nobody will understand the language of weapons. If you present your views peacefully, the world will listen to you. If you speak language of guns you'll be killed and you'll gain nothing. I appeal to Jammu and Kashmir youth to leave weapons and talk. They'll have to listen one day."
